    Normal 0 false false false EL X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Greetings ladies and gentlemen. As the title says: Drivers/Players start your engines!!

     

    This will be the first edition of WGT Le Mans Tournament. As many of you know, Le Mans is the most prestigious/toughest race in automobile sport. 24 hours of driving. So, I thought to create something similar here in WGT land. With no further delay i will describe the frame of this tournament.

    Since it’s the first edition, I call upon 18 teams which have already participated in World Cup. Here they are in alphabetical order:

    Aphrodite

    Aussie Aussie Aussie

    Bill's Band

    Black Diamond

    Blood and Fire Country Club

    Kasias Korner

    Cobra Kai

    Freedom CC

    Golfos

    LFG Country Club

    Nice and Friendly

    SEL

    TCC

    The Bushwalkers

    The Fairway Fanatics Golf Club

    THE FOUNDERS CLUB

    The Penalty Box

    WGT AMIGOS


    Rules:

     

    Each Country Club can have a team of 4 or 6 players (to be decided yet) plus a captain. Each CC can name its team at will (logos will be appreciated as well for each team). Every player will be playing for 4 or 6 hours in a row then the second player will take his/her place to continue the race, then the third and so on. The game will last 24 hours. All rounds will be streamed, meaning the whole duration of the tournament (24 hours) will be streamed. This means that all participants must have active accounts to some stream provider (Twitch, Youtube etc). Videos must be available from the streamer for at least 48 hours for cross checking. Captains are responsible to deliver the scores for every session (however, the rounds will be registered from WGT, so, won’t be difficult to check them). Captains are also responsible to replace a player/driver on the fly in case of unfortunate events (such as: Lost connection for over 10 minutes, emergency for the player who has to run and all sort of sinister situations). Each player can have a break of 5 minutes after 2 hour of playing. I will keep this post open for editing the rules if necessary.


    Race Rules:



    Teams will be playing all 15 courses in alphabetical order:

    Bethpage Black

    Chambers Bay

    Congressional

    Erin Hills

    Kiawah

    Merion

    Oakmont

    PGA

    Pebble Beach

    Pinehurst

    Royal St George

    St Andrews

    The Olympic Club

    Torrey Pines

    Wolf Creek




    18 holes stroke in practice mode. Picked practice mode because will be a live draw few days before the tournament starts, which will dictate randomly the conditions for every course (wind, tees, green speed). So, every player must be extremely cautious setting up the course in a proper manner. The goal is obvious: make the best possible score on every course a player plays. The max time for the completion of every course it will be 1 hour. In case the player hasn’t completed his/her round in the above time frame, will have a bogey penalty for each of the remaining holes. The above rule does not apply on the last hour of each session where the player can deliver his/her score with no penalty. The next player will start the session from the next course available in alphabetical order. Apparels will be off.

     

    Fees/Sponsors

     

    Since I don’t have any sponsors, I would say that the entry fee for each team will be 20.000 credits for now. If there are generous sponsors of this event, there will be no reason for entry fee (which will be used for the prizes).


    At this point, I ask kindly from WGT to sponsor this event with 100.000 credits. In my opinion, it will be exciting and fairly promotional for the whole game.

     

    Time schedule:

     

    The event will take place Saturday 5 of November 2022. It will start at 12.00 o’clock UK time (midday) and naturally it will finish at the same hour next day. All teams must be entered till Sunday 30 of October at 23.59 UK time.

     

    As I said, I will keep editing this post since probably there a lot of things to be said on the rule section, the prizes etc,  so stay tuned and start your engines.


    Sponsors:

    Jimi 10K

    Just so I understand.  You want WGT to donate 100,000 credits for this, but only 18 clubs are invited (by you) to play?

    Yes. I want WGT to sponsor the first Le Mans edition tournament.

    I called upon these 18 clubs, cause are the ones who participated in the World Cup. If other clubs want to play, the door is open.

    Okay.  A couple more questions.

    1. How is the 20,000 credit entry fee per team to be paid?
    2. What happens if a player can't stream on Twitch or YouTube... are they not allowed to play?
    3. What's the credit payout structure?  

    ----------

    I'd also like to point out a few things.

    Practice rounds are not kept in your Score History for verification

    Yiannis1970:
    Apparels will be off.

    You can't set Apparel Off for solo rounds, even in Practice mode

    You might want to consider removing those lines from your post.  It look really stupid.

    How is the 20,000 credit entry fee per team to be paid?

     

    Since all the fees are going to be for the prizes, 20.000 will be payed via challenge games to those who will win the prizes. That's why i asked for sponsors which makes things a lot easier.

     

    What happens if a player can't stream on Twitch or YouTube... are they not allowed to play?

    Since the whole event has to be streamed, it's obvious that whoever can't or doesn't want to stream, won't be allowed to play.

    What's the credit payout structure?

    Naturally to be decided yet. As soon as i have the entire pot, i will update the post about prizes and distribution.

     

    Practice rounds are not kept in your Score History for verification

     

    True, my bad. However, the video will be up for 48 hours for cross checking the scores. Not much of an issue.

     

    You can't set Apparel Off for solo rounds, even in Practice mode

    Of course you can set apparel off for every round. Just go to edit apparel and under abilities tab you put everything to NO.

     

    You might want to consider removing those lines from your post.  It look really stupid.

     

     I know and i have tried various times to edit the text...nothing seems to work in order to fix it. When i try to edit it, the whole text appears perfect and can't eliminate the lines which appear after.

     

    I think you mean Kasias Korner

     

    Yes.

    Since the whole event has to be streamed, it's obvious that whoever can't or doesn't want to stream, won't be allowed to play.

    How about Discord, Yianni?   Many of us prefer that for streaming. The drawback being that I don't think the stream can be saved for later review.

    Hello Jack.

    As long as the round is recorded and then uploaded it on youtube, i don't see any problem.
